Danish race driver Allan Simonson has died at the Le Mans 24 hour race in France earlier today. He crashed on the 3rd lap and was taken to the medical facility but later died there.

I was watching the race live and saw the crash. It's horrible how these people are literally risking their lives for entertainment. The most disturbing thing is that everyone carries on as if nothing happened, the race was only slowed by safety car so they could remove the debris and fix the track, and the commentators briefly mentioned it before carrying on with the other stuff.

Only 35 years old and had a wife and kids. I would have gone to it but decided to go to the F1 at silverstone next week instead.
